Rooney is gone, so is 60 Minutes

Editor: Since Andy Rooney died, CBS 60 Minutes has gone downhill fast.

Recently I saw three fluffy pieces of good old American baloney instead of an interesting but controversial piece of news. Where have those revealing but shocking stories about topics such as human slavery disappeared to?

60 Minutes used to have a higher standard of stories to offer but now they are the same dull stories all the U.S. media report on. If 60 Minutes isn’t going to report on controversy such as President Obama’s private hit squad then who will?
